Objective: As part of the 2012 Kickoff celebration in New York, a new event called "Flags" will recognize each NFL club and the unique qualities the club and their city add to the NFL. The flags will fly at Rockefeller Center and will be featuring as an opening element to the game on Wednesday, Sept 3, 2012. The flags will be raised prior to performances by Mariah Carey and No Doubt.
In June the flags project began as a fan contest in order to further connect this to the local community. Fans had the opportunity to write their best description, in concept, what the team means to their city. The initial submissions were filtered down to the top 5 for every club, then sent to the clubs to choose the winner. The chosen concepts range in content and ideas and are ready to be interpreted into flag designs.

San Francisco 49ers
The word San Francisco shaped like the Golden Gate Bridge with "49ers" enscribed in the middle of the bridge with the sunset and city in the background.
